Guest Post – About Kelly Ayotte and her Constitutional disdain

by Skip June 22, 2016

Senator Ayotte: Thank you for exhibiting your basic misunderstanding of both the NH and US Constitutions with your support of Senator Collins latest bill. Super secret government lists that a person does not know they are on, has no way of getting off the list used to deny that person of multiple natural rights? You […]

The purpose of the Dems and the Media is to continue to destroy the Constitution

by Skip June 16, 2016

Let’s start with this: Kerrie Diers (Exec. Dir. of the Nashua (New Hampshire) Regional Planning Commission) doesn’t care much that your land gets in the way of her planning (for your own good as in “WHY do our perceptions of the needs of the Collective have to give way to what Individuals own?”): “Private Property […]

by Steve MacDonald June 16, 2016
Thumbnail image for Trey Gowdy – Clarifying The Need for Due Process Protections for all the Amendments

Using no-fly lists in all their arbitrary glory to ignore due process protections takes on a whole new light when you apply the same empty fascist thinking to other natural rights enumerated in the Constitution. Congressman Trey Gowdy drives the point home in this video from last year which I’ve been sharing all over social media. […]

“It’s finally a WOMAN’S job to disregard the Constitution”

by Skip June 11, 2016

Ah yes, a number of women all ga-ga that perhaps it will be a woman in the Oval Office… …just hope that Monica didn’t have a brother. (H/T: ReasonTV)

Who wants to take away your guns? This Democrat National Committee member

by Skip June 8, 2016

There is no doubt that there are those on the Left that want to disarm the American populace (e.g.,Senator Feinstein (D-CA) for one who has said as much in the past). I am quite sure that if Hillary gains the Oval Office, she will do what she can to defenestrate the Second Amendment via regulations […]

Libertarian Prez Candidate Darryl Perry won’t register with the FEC?

by Skip May 12, 2016

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Given what I wrote here, I thought this was interesting […]

Three “odd” statements regarding Free Society and guns; what part of “free” is so hard to understand?

by Skip May 3, 2016

OK, one by by reporting TV station and two by a politician who swears an oath to uphold the Constitution (reformatted, emphasis mine): A bill making its way through the Statehouse could put more guns on the streets of South Carolina. Rep. Wendell Gilliard said Friday he believes it’s a mistake to pass a bill […]

I have a question, a very simple question, for US Speaker of the House Paul Ryan…

by Skip April 18, 2016

President Obama’s executive amnesty represents a “threat” to America’s very system of government, according to House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).  “The Constitution is clear: Presidents don’t write laws, Congress does,” Ryan said Monday ahead of oral arguments before the Supreme Court in United States v. Texas. “Presidents may disagree with the laws, but they […]

Data Point – where did it go?

by Skip April 18, 2016

Having just sent in my taxes today (actually did all the record gathering and computations last week), where does it go? And that is about a $4 Trillion budget.  But what would it be IF our leaders had never strayed from sticking to the strictures of the Constitution.  Well, certainly the military (Pentagon) would be […]

The Destruction of an Existing Constitution…

by Steve MacDonald April 9, 2016

Orestes Brownson Providence gives to each nation, not miraculously,… the political constitution best fitted to its genius, its wants, and its destiny, and it is a crime and a sin to attempt to subvert it whether from without or from within.  Abuses may be reformed, but the revolutionizing of a government, or the destruction of […]

If you are treading onto Constitutional grounds, try READING it first…

by Skip April 4, 2016

I try to make the rounds of the NH newspapers; this morning at the Concord Monitor I came across a Letter to the Editor from someone who definitely doesn’t understand his civics (emphasis mine): Letter: Cheated by Ayotte, GOP Sen. Ayotte was recently quoted as saying she believes “the American people deserve to have a […]

CloseUP – Jeanne Shaheen and WMUR’s crappy transcript

by Skip April 3, 2016

Yup, another Sunday, another CloseUP and this week, Josh McElven had US Senator Jeanne Shaheen (or better described as the Federal Government’s Ambassador to New Hampshire) and perhaps Candidate-To-Be Rich Ashooh for US Congress in CD-1 (he formally announces tomorrow).  She said a couple of things that caught my ear so I figured, per normal, […]

Seriously, these three are the top responsibilities of the Federal Government?

by Skip March 30, 2016

I missed last night’s CNN Townhall with the Republican Prez candidates.  As always, Donald Trump made the buzz of the night.  Certainly his utterance on abortion made waves.  Sure, I am a pro-life supporter but even I blanched when I heard what he said.  That said, it’s what else he said that caught my attention […]

Tiny Man Stuffs Tiny Strawmen in Hopes to Pressure Senate for Supreme Court Hearing

by Scott Morales March 19, 2016

The MoveOn mountebanks have sent out a link to a video featuring Robert Reich commenting on the current Supreme Court nominee situation and the Senate’s advice.  You remember Mr. Reich, the wee fella in the Clinton administration (the last one, not the looming one). He makes his case with his general thesis being: Those dastardly […]

Once again, a Democrat crying over the Bureaucracy getting hamstrung?

by Skip March 18, 2016

The Administrative State – as I’ve said for years, it is the end goal of Progressives and we see too many Republicans (right, Ovide?) supporting other Republicans in moving the Overton Window leftward in achieving it in diminishing the power of the Legislative Branch by the empowerment of the Executive Branch’s agencies.  The only way […]

Carson Fails Constitutional Test, Bush Passes!

by Mike February 14, 2016

Debate Doodlings #1 Moderator: “You recently wrote a book about the Constitution, doctor…” REALLY? Him and which ghost? When I have to tell you that JEB came closer to understanding what the constitution says about nominating judges than Carson, it is clear that Carson has a flimsy grasp of facts, policy, and (because he’s still […]

Someone else understands why Bernie is doing well with Millenials

I’ve been saying saying the same thing for years – and remember that it was the Frankfurt School and Gramsci that said for the Socialist / Communists to take over the ramparts of culture.  Now we are seeing that they were successful (emphasis mine): ANALYSIS: TRUE.

“I wanted to share a look back at some of the work I’ve been doing for you in Senate”

by Skip January 5, 2016

That was from an email I received from Kelly Ayotte, the junior Senator from NH.  She’s running for reelection and I’ve been getting a bunch of her emails touting her “accomplishments”.  No, I’m not going to post it here – especially as it leaves out some of her accomplishments that, well, don’t sit well with […]

The ‘Free the Nipple’ Freedom Farce

by Kimberly Morin January 1, 2016

You’ve probably heard of the ‘Free the Nipple’ group of women in New Hampshire who are defying local ordinances and showing up at beaches around the state topless to garner attention for their ‘cause.’ I wrote about one of them yesterday, she believes it’s her Constitutional right to be topless wherever men can be topless […]

Shiny Object: headlines should not be about Progressives/Dems calling for Gun Control

by Skip December 9, 2015

Or in the case of the NY Times, an outright call for confiscation of guns.  However, that seems to be the ideological wash of the day (as if removing guns is going to just get rid of Islamic Jihad?) – everything is about the gun and not about the evil “political ideology in a religious […]

Speaking of the national debt, how about Kelly Ayotte and that End Government Shutdowns Act?

Yep, National Debt Ceiling time again and we’ve seen this movie already.  Kelly Ayotte has a new bill (2/15) and Kim had a post on it here; US Senate sponsors are: “Mr. Portman (for himself, Ms. Ayotte, Mr. Barrasso, Mr. Enzi, Mr. Grassley, Mr. Isakson, Mr. Johnson, Mr. Lee, Mr. Rubio, and Mr. Toomey)”.  By setting […]
